Flicka Dec 27, 2017 11:12 AM Hills Above Carpinteria Thanks, Max, brings home the horror of what happened to our Carp hills. The weather channel reports slight showers on New Years Day. It would go a long way in holding down the ash when the wind blows. A firefighter told me, "If you think the fire is bad, wait until the floods." We can only hope for no heavy rains.
